The European Development Days (EDD) will take place in Brussels on 18-19 June 2019.

More than 8,000 speakers, Heads of State or Government, experts, key influencers and Young Leaders from all over the world will attend this two-day event. The EDD is a large international forum where the most important actors of international cooperation and development share their ideas and experiences to find innovative solutions to solve the world’s most pressing challenges.

This year, the theme of the EDDs will be the fight against inequalities and their link with sustainable development. President Jean-Claude Juncker said:“We have a shared responsibility towards future generations. By joining hands with governments, international organisations, NGOs, the private sector and young leaders, we can have an impact on reducing inequalities in the world and make a true difference for the young people who have put their trust in us. They deserve nothing less.”
